Male Infertility Treatment

Infertility is a condition of married couples more than one and a half years without contraception, no children. One-half-year figures set, since it is usually 85 percent of couples in a year and half already have children. This means, 15 percent of couples of childbearing age have this problem.

Reality shows, 40 percent of the problems that make it difficult to have children there are in women, 40 percent in men, and 30 percent in both. So, do not correct the assumption that women are responsible for the difficulty of getting children.

Although the problem of infertility had no effect on daily physical activity and not life-threatening, for many couples this is a great impact on family life. Surely psikokultural factors influencing attitudes towards the couple this problem, including efforts irrational to have children. Indeed, what the patient can not be blamed entirely, as though cutting edge of medical science can not answer satisfactorily the problem of infertility.

Examination of men with infertility doctors performed just like in people in other diseases, but accompanied by examination of sperm. These hearings to see the potential of male to fertilize. When there are problems, then do the other more in-depth examination.


As well as prevention of disease in general, the first attempt ever to be undertaken is to find the cause of infertility. 
The most common cause of male infertility is widening vein / veins around the testicles is called a varicocele. On physical examination, this is found in the form of a lump at the top of the testicles will grow real big and when to push. The more frequent contact with the left scrotum.
Most of the varicocele is not accompanied by pain, although some are complaining sore in the area. Varicocele was found in 40 percent of patients. These findings are not much different from the findings of one of the renowned infertility prevention centers at Baylor College of Medicine, United States, where 42 percent.

Other causes of infertility in men is a blockage / obstruction in the vas deferens. So although the spermatozoa produced by both, remains to be channeled. Usually this is caused by the occurrence of congenital infection and because it does not formed part of the vas deferens. This occurred in 15 percent of patients. In the remaining 20 percent, infertility caused by various factors, such as hormonal disorders, congenital abnormalities, the influence of drugs, erectile or ejaculatory disturbances, radiation, pesticide poisoning, immunological disorders, surgery in the pelvic area, and others.

By knowing the factors that cause it, some things can be done to prevent or cope with infertility.

Prevention of infertility

Some things you can do : various kinds of infections are known to cause infertility, especially infection of the prostate, testes, and vas deferens. Therefore, any infection in this area should be taken seriously.
Some substances can be toxic to the growth of sperm. Many studies have shown adverse effects of smoking on sperm count and quality. Although each study is different in determining the amount of cigarettes that effect, is enough reason for men with sperm count and quality less to quit smoking.
Alcohol in large quantities associated with lower testosterone levels which would interfere with the growth of sperm. Marijuana is also known as one of the causes of growth disorders of sperm, so the cessation of the use of marijuana and alcohol is a preventive effort to infertility.

Quite a lot of drugs that affect the sperm. Therefore, tell me more about a drug that has been and is being used to help your doctor.

The best mitigation is to deal with the cause. Unfortunately, not all causes are known and vice versa is quite a lot of people with a known cause, but can not completely overcome.
Infertility is no known cause is a significant problem because it covers 20 percent of sufferers. Abatement in the form of several kinds of drugs, which had raised the amount of experience and quality of sperm. But most of the research done by using a comparison, showed no significant improvement. Effort to find the cause of the chromosome level and success of genetic manipulation seems to be a point of hope in the future.

A blockage in the vas deferens can be ascertained only by surgery. If the blockage is so severe, with the aid of a microscope can be operated corrections. At the same operation, can also be ascertained whether or not the production of sperm in the testicles.

In accordance with the abnormalities are found, then other causes can be overcome by correcting the hormonal and cessation drugs suspected of causing sperm disorders. However, efforts in the above there are times when not managed to improve the quality and quantity of sperm, so that assisted reproduction techniques are required. Included in this is relief insemination and in-vitro insemination (IVF / IVF), which greatly helps to overcome male infertility problems.

For example, men with only 5-10 million sperm / cc (from the normal 20 million) can try artificial insemination. IVF requires only 500,000 sperm with 30-35 percent pregnancy rate. The most remarkable progress in the last 7-8 years is the technique of IVF with ICSI (Intra cytoplasmic Sperm Injection) which only requires a few spermatozoa to be injected into the mother's egg cell. The success rate is almost the same.

Obvious explanation

Such a cursory overview of infertility problems in men. Enterprises have offspring that had lasted for centuries would indeed continue. Various advances have been achieved although there is one thing that remains, that is such great expectations of the patient. Sometimes this led to the choices made without consideration mature.

Therefore, always ask your doctor a clear explanation about the therapies offered, complete with the possibility of success. This way you can be more rational conduct all examinations and treatment, excessive or hopeless despair.
